The technology allows drivers to access a kiosk, enter in their license plate number and park in any space within a specific zone. Coins, credit cards or debit cards may be used for payment at kiosks and parking time may be purchased via mobile app or by phone.

“The overarching goal is to write less tickets, to give people every opportunity to feed the meter so they do not get a ticket and to spur economic development,” Brown said. “This system we know will produce less tickets because you are going to have more options to pay the meter.”
